a documentary with pbs's "frontline" on adam lanza. susan, you spoke with the connecticut state police. what are they telling you? >> as police put it, they're saying that "we're dealing with a shooter who is dead and now we're trying to rebuild history." police are downplaying the cbs report. quoting here, here's what they're telling me, "there's no basis to the cbs story. we have not established a motive. it's inaccurate. i talked with cbs and told them that. the cbs story is not accurate whatsoever." however, the spokesman also told me that the possibility that lanza was trying to outdo norway has not been ruled out nor has anything else. investigators reportedly suggest that adam lanza may have been trying to one-up another mass murder by topping anders breivik in norway, as you said he killed 77 people, mainly teenagers. cbs news quotes law enforcement sources who found evidence of that as a possible motive in newtown. part of the evidence? news articles. "the hartford courant" reports several stories about the massacre were discovered in one of lanza's two bedrooms. connecticut investi
the democratic party, cnn, cbs, pbs, a few other outlets. i think it was really shocking that leon panetta testified that there were over 200 credible security threats for 9/11, right. he said it wasn't just benghazi. there were all these other possible threats. cairo embassy was on fire, being overrun. but not -- he said not only was no one scrambled to go to benghazi's rescue, no one was ready to be scrambled. there was no sufficient resources in the area for a thousand miles, panetta says. if you've got these warnings as dempsey said they knew about the cable that was sent to hillary clinton saying benghazi's not defensible. they knew about the 200 threats. why wasn't there a plane ready to be scrambled for an intervention in the first place? it's a very strange oversight that no one teams t seems to be particularly outraged. >> you heard panetta say you can't fly in f-16s and bomb the heck out of a place. you can use it psych ljl psychoy and fly it over the compound. they're very intimidating. >> no question. at the very least they could have been used to disperse the crowds. you hear
, and welcome to this "pbs newshour" special coverage of president obama's "state of the union" address. we want you to know this program is also being livestreamed on our home page on the web. in just a few moments, the president will spell out his policy agenda for the start of his second term. he is expected tonight to focus mainly on jobs and the economy, and to highlight other domestic priorities including gun control and immigration reform, but also to touch on international challenges. here with me, as they will be throughout our coverage tonight, are syndicated columnist mark shields and "new york times" columnist david brooks. mark, what is different about a state of the union when it's the first one of a second term? >> you don't have that many more to look forward to? the sand is running out of the glass. this is probably the best shot that most presidents have in their second term is that first year-and-a-half before you get into congressional elections and the lame duckness really sets in. the race to succeed him begins while he's just sitting there. so this is important. this is th
of -- lot of news about this issue. in january, pbs's "nov a" had a documentary called "rise of the drones," and last week's "time" magazine cover carried the same title, and, of course, the administration's use of drones for targeting terrorists to con cronet our war on terrorism has come to be a central issue in the confirmation hearing of the proposed cia directer, the nominee, john brennan. however, privacy issues and military applications of uas beyond the scope of this hearing. i use the term "unmanned aircraft systems" or usa instead of uas or drones because it is a more complete term. uas are complex systems made up of not just aircraft, but as well as supporting ground, air, and communications infrastructure. uas comes in a variety of shapes and sizes and carries out a wide range of missions. aviation has come a long way in a relatively short period of time thanks to american innovation and i think newty. the list of pioneers in aviation and aerospace is very long. you may not know the details of the achievement, but i'm shore you know names like cesna, james mcdonald and donald d

about young's life "the power broker" will be the airing february 18th as part of the pbs series "independent lenses." and we are joined now by his niece who is the producer and executive producer of "the power broker." everybody on my team is watching the film, and let's start with t the number one critique of whitney young in his life and the one that the fillp takes on directly, and that is because he was not marching in the streets and instead working in the board rooms that he was an uncle tom or somehow selling out the civil rights movement, and how does this film make it on and give us a new and reclaimed whitney young? >> well, this film points out that whitney young understood more roles to play and the more sophisticated one got into the movement and everybody understood that, that malcolm x had a role the play and whitney young had a role the play, and it is important that we think in a nuanced way that, you know, everybody's p opiniopinion coul into the mix and move forward so the fact that he was in the board room meant that he was in a different venue and working be

pbs documentary series. earl morris, i think, was the director, i'm not sure, on the prohibition era. he devotes a whole last section of the book, not very long, but the myth of joe kennedy actually being involved in smuggling. he did make money off of alcohol right at the end of prohibition, but technically speaking he was more of a speculator than a smuggler. but somehow, it's interesting, there is this sort of taken for granted mythology that a made the this money bootlegging. no -- >> irish. >> no, the real profiteers in this particular story, um, were the bronsons from canada who bought seagrams and some of the fam family funded respectful institutions in canada. they got their start through prohibition and pushed sometimes aggressively competitors aside. so they had this questionable origins and completely went legit. >> interesting. the california wine industry also got a huge boost from prohibition. they would set out casks with warning labels which said warning after six months, if this liquid is -- this grape juice is allowed to sit for six months, it will become alcohol an
're learning more about the troubled background of adam lanza. a new investigation by pbs finds that lanza was diagnosed with a sensory disorder, was very shy and liked being touched only by his mother. as for the exposure to guns, friends say lanza's mother nancy loved shooting because it helped her bond with her son. >> extraordinary reporting. this is kind of one of the summary graphs of the story, what emerges in this exploration of a still unfolding story is a portrait of a mother apparently devoted but perhaps misguided, struggling to find a place for her son in society. and a boy exceptionally smart in some areas, profoundly deficient in others, who never found a place in the world. >> it's just so sad because of the outcome of this. you think when you look at what happened in their life, you think if she had just made a different decision somewhere along the way, this could have been avoided. and everybody points to the guns, and that being the wrong decision that she made. but perhaps it's not the guns. maybe it's the type of help she got for her son and it wasn't adequate enough.
